Subhash Ghai has revealed his newest protégée.

Bengali actress Mishti is to play the lead heroine role in the filmmaker's upcoming Kaanchi.

"More than 240 girls auditioned for the role but most were devoid of talent. The ones who were talented were not good looking," said the director.

Mishti is the 11th new actor Ghai will be launching after introducing stars including Meenakshi Seshadri, Madhuri Dixit, Manisha Koirala and Mahima Chaudhary to the Hindi film industry.

The film also features veteran actors Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty and Om Puri.

Ghai's last film Yuvraaj, which starred Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan, did not live up to commercial box office expectations when it released in 2008.

Kaanchi is released on August 15.
